Posts Tagged ‘Red & Brown Outfit

This look recieved the most enthusiastic reaction from my husband.  I was rather surprised that he liked the tights and booties look.  His praise wasn’t just one comment and even went so far as to suggest that my dress idea for his Christmas party lacked this kind of interest.  Notice my new haircut and color, I love it!

Now it was quite a surprise that my husband was so enamored with this look.  I stripped off the jacket and belt to show him just the dress and he then became even more impressed with how I had styled it.  He wasn’t sure he even would have taken a second glance with just the dress…In fact he complimented my vision in buying the dress.

I almost felt bad that this was not an outfit I had chosen for a night out with him.  In fact he was getting ready to head to work when this entire discussion took place.  I knew he loved this jacket and that his favorite color is red, so his reaction really shouldn’t be so surprising except that he isn’t usually so enthusiastic about my clothing choices. Complimentary, yes, “over the moon”, no…

I have to say that his reaction sure made it easy for me to hold my head high and walk with confidence on my outing… I must have been beaming as I noticed a few looks from a couple of men around my age at Panera Bread…. Definitely going to repeat this outfit on a day when my husband and I have time together.

Linking up today with all the lovely bloggers @ Visible Monday and Watch out What I’m Wearing, so please stop by and check a few of them out.  

Gratitude: I am grateful that I finally figured out what to wear to the Christmas party.  I am grateful that my three kids got together and raked the leaves.  I am grateful for my own inner drive to recommit to the Fluidity exercise program.  I am grateful for the support of my family and friend Sue who endured my search for the Christmas party outfit.
